About 14 different girls from the soccer team helped out by going into the restaurant to get the number of dinners each person ordered and brought them out to their car. Each girl worked about an hour or sometimes two. Many parents helped out as well.
After breaking her collarbone in July, Jenna began feeling discomfort in the same area in late January. She had some scans done that indicated a tumor had formed. On February 8th she was diagnosed with Ewing’s sarcoma, an extremely rare and aggressive cancer that typically forms in and around the bone. She’s currently going through testing to determine what stage classification will be, we are all praying it hasn’t spread. Because Ewing’s sarcomas are so high grade, they’re categorized as at least stage III. Aggressive inpatient chemotherapy treatments (5 days in hospital) will begin soon and continue for around 1 year. The doctors have also advised Jenna on the effects of chemotherapy and need to freeze her eggs; an expense only minimally covered by insurance. This next year will be a battle and will change her life forever.
